Who the hell is Garry Burns?

So Garry Burns has lodged a complaint against Israel Folau. I guess he’s done so in order to demonstrate the ‘tolerance’ of the rainbow.

And, in that, he’s doing a great job I must say. Garry Burns has given us the best demonstration yet that when we get to the end of the rainbow we will not find any tolerance at all…

Most Australians would be wondering who the hell Garry Burns is. Being somewhat acquainted with him, courtesy of his obsession with me (he has lodged 36 complaints against me since 2014 and sent me hundreds of charming emails), I suppose I am well placed to answer this burning question.

So here goes.

Firstly, Garry Burns has complained that Israel Folau vilified homosexuals by warning on social media and in his sermon that those who engage in homosexual activity face the prospect of hell.

And Garry Burns knows a thing or two about condemning people to hell himself:

Secondly, Garry Burns has complained that Israel Folau’s statements are hate speech. Fortunately, ol’ Gazza is able to make that judgement as he is one of Australia’s foremost experts in this particular field:

Thirdly, while Burns is quick out of the blocks to use the ‘justice’ system, he also has quite a fondness for the idea of vigilante justice:

Fourthly, Australia’s favourite human rights warrior isn’t just doing this for sake of humanity, you know. He understands very well that the anti-discrimination industry also helps you to seize other people’s assets. All for the greater good, of course:

Fifthly, Garry Burns likes to tell the world that he doesn’t lodge complaints for his own financial gain.

Which is why it is sooooo odd that his private correspondence tells a different story:

Sixth, while Garry “I’m-Not-In-It-For-The-Money” Burns has publicly stated that he does not believe in free speech, he likes to freely express his views about violently assaulting Catholics:

Screenshot of an email I received from Garry Burns on 26 Ocotber, 2014.

Seventh, our good friend is also of the intellectual type. His actions are based on high principle and name calling and crude commentary is just not his thing:

Screenshot of an email I received from Garry Burns on 3 September, 2014.

Eighth, being such a hard working professional whinger, it can sometimes be difficult for our man Burns to find enough to complain about. However, Garry has a solution for that problem: when there’s not much action he then complains about his own comments!

He simply posts comments on other people’s Facebook pages, screenshots them and fires off a complaint to the ‘Thought Police’:

Just for the record, the words Burns’ complained about above were clearly written by him and the only time they ever appeared on my social media was when he posted them there. But that did not stop the New South Wales Anti-Discrimination Board from accepting his complaint that I had ‘published’ on my Facebook page the words “Exterminate the Homos” and this complaint eventually made it all the way to the High Court of Australia.

And it should not really fill you with confidence that I eventually defeated this complaint.

Why? Well, I won because I live in Queensland (a jurisdictional reason) and not because the complaint was fabricated (which is the common-sense reason it should have been dismissed).

Ninth, given all of this, you might not think too highly of Garry Burns. But don’t let that worry you. He has an even lower opinion of himself. He believes that he’s akin to a sexually-transmitted disease:

Screenshot of an email I received from Garry Burns on 16 August, 2019.

And tenth, it is unsurprising, given his line of work, that Old Mate Herpes also wants the taxpayer to kick in and pay for his legal fees:

Screenshot of an article published in The Australian on 4 July, 2018.

Now that you know who the hell Garry Burns is, you’re probably not surprised at all that he has lodged a complaint against Israel Folau.

Neither am I.

Burns is merely following his ‘principles’.

And it is simply a matter of coincidence that Burns sprang into action against Folau months after the Rugby star made his comments. It has absolutely nothing at all do with the fact that just days before Burns lodged his complaint he was hit with bankruptcy action.

I’m pretty sure that no one in Australia could possibly think that Israel Folau is flush with cash and an easy target for an anti-discrimination complaint…especially if your ‘work’ consists entirely of lodging anti-discrimination complaints.

  5. The existence of the publicly funded anti discrimination industry salaried and administered by politically correct fanatics demonstrates the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the three major political parties. Yes there are other thus afflicted parties but the trio of major party oligarchies
    are the ones who hold office at federal and state levels. Expecting an authentic moral stance from any of them is to succumb to credulous fantasy.
    If you want much more of the same vote for any of them. They are irreformable

  6. How can one “LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS THYSELF”…Am I an Agnostic, Heathen, Non Christian or whatever. This individual is a low down Filthy, Vexatious, Litigant of the lowest of lows. In the old days at school he would be known as a “POONCE” or worse. Today, this world has gone down to the lowest of the lows and sadly the Governments of nearly all persuasions have, and are contributing to this. Excuse my FRENCH but all this Political Correctness, GREEN following, GAY RIGHTS and Same Sex Marriage IS ALL BULLSHIT.Let us bring back FREE SPEECH, GET A LIFE, BE A MAN/woman, WORK Hard and Make Australia Great Again….Get Australia MANUFACTURING AGAIN.

  7. The rainbow is a covenant from God to mankind. When God destroyed all the wicked people with the great flood. Noah, his family & 2 of each kind of best animals were saved in the Ark.

    The beautiful rainbow is God’s only, & no one else can claim it as their own.
    Some bad people today have taken one colour out of it & are trying to claim it as their symbol.
    Such fools.
    Terry F exactly correct. Each person’s soul/spirit is eternal & their deeds, evil & good are recorded during their life on their soul ready for judgement day. True repentance though Jesus Christ is the only way a person’s sins can be cleansed. Once a person repents his/her sins the devil’s advocate at judgement will see a clean record.
    Pray for all that they will repent before they depart this life & they will then be at peace with God.

  12. In NSW there are proceedings with Which Burns should be dealt with. All of those mentioned above,including mr Gaynor need to band together as a group and have Burns declared a vexatious litigant.
    I see at least one reason for his naming as such,declaring that he is going to try and gain a hold on the Gaynor family home. Another is ,instituting proceedings to harass or Annoy. I would be incredibly annoyed if someone took me to court because their feelings were hurt because i don’t particularly like the activities that homosexuals engage in .Especially when the number of complaints reached 38 .
    What are vexatious proceedings?
    Anyone who frequently and persistently takes legal action without reasonable grounds or for improper purposes can be subjected to a vexatious proceedings order under the Vexatious Proceedings Act 2008(the Act)

    Section 6 of the Act defines vexatious proceedings:

    (a) proceedings that are an abuse of the process of a court or tribunal, and

    (b) proceedings instituted to harass or annoy, to cause delay or detriment, or for another wrongful purpose, and

    (c) proceedings instituted or pursued without reasonable ground, and

    (d) proceedings conducted in a way so as to harass or annoy, cause delay or detriment, or achieve another wrongful purpose.

    • Thanks Ron – I have taken advice about this.

      A difficulty is that the NCAT has upheld so many of Burns’ complaints that it will be risky to ask a court to declare him vexatious. Essentially, we basically need a court to have the courage to also declare that NCAT has aided and abetted this farce.

        Thanks Bernard.

    • Exactly, something needs to be done about people like Gary Burn’s abusive behaviour. It never fails to amaze me that people like Gary can say what they like with no consequences but someone like Bernard with deep held beliefs too has cost him dearly for defending what the majority of us think. Gary Burns needs to be registered as a serial pest & should have no access to taxpayers money to fund his personal complaints, he should be made to fund his own complaints

  13. Bernard, the language used towards you speaks of an unsound mind and one with a specific vendetta. It’s interesting that in Australia how the law can be used by such people to vindicate their need to totally finish a person’s reputation, finances, and life generally. And there is no law against that!! The case of George Pell is a classic example. I have looked up the people on the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board as they are working hand in glove with him. Maybe it’s not possible for you to write a resume of these people, as it may be used against you. I’m saddened by the NSW Government not being able to, or want to do something about those who are elevated to these roles, as they are certainly not people who ought to be in such positions either as they are prepared to tolerate this type of language, which says a lot about them. May 2020 bring a new perspective, to all this and may the Lord bring a miracle solution outcome to you and your family. Merry Christmas.

  14. Ah, the irony of someone demanding tolerance (the new buzz-word is ‘inclusive’) but only when it suits himself and his decision to endlessly politicize his own lifestyle orientation and sexuality. It’s a massive con and I don’t buy it or believe it for one moment. I am probably nothing like Bernard Gaynor. (I never got married, never wanted kids, don’t go to church) but I can still easily see and sense the hypocrisy of politicized gays and other minority groups who take advantage of the system or abuse the legal process.

  15. I am disgusted that our Courts and judges have not seen fit to tell this person to go away and stop bothering them with his insults , slander and abuse to Bernard and Folau.If I was a judge I’d have him up for extortion, because, plain and simply, that is what it is.

  16. Serious question and might be simplistic but is why I am asking. My understanding from when we were actually taught civics at school is the states are separate entities when it comes to jurisdictional grounds, hence extradition requests and the likes for anything other than a Federal matter. Why not ignore all the BS from NSW & stay away from the state. If they want your money certainly they would have their Kangaroo Court which would certainly award costs but they would have to apply to a Queensland Court to seize assets wouldn’t they? Then you could apply to strike out on jurisdictional grounds.

    Secondly just curious why the HC hasn’t started contempt proceeding against HRC NSW? Clear case of contempt in my layman’s eyes.

    • The reason you can’t ignore it is because if the system was allowed to grind on there is a likelihood that you’d be arrested and jailed for contempt of court.

      That is exactly what Burns was seeking to do to Tess Corbett (a Victorian grandmother) who attempted to just ignore it all. Contempt proceedings were underway when the High Court ruled the whole show was unconstitutional.

      Burns is also seeking to have brain-damaged man John Sunol face contempt charges.

  18. Izzy also said that Atheist would go to hell. If an Atheist doesn’t believe in the teachings of Christianity, how can he believe in hell.
    I,when I die, will be cremated and the ashes scattered in a secret place where people like Izzy and yourself can’t find me. Very Secret; maybe even Top Secret!

    • Maurie Young, you are in for a big and shocking surprise. You don’t really think that cremation and scattering your ashes ends your existence. You are not just flesh and blood. Yes, you have physical body, but you also have a soul, (the real, immaterial you) who will stand before the creator of the universe, one day, to give an account of your life, and atm, you will be found wanting, unless you come to know Him, whom to know is eternal life.

    • Unfortunately Maurie Young, it will only be your physical flesh & bones scattered as ashes in your “secret” place. Truth doesn’t change just because a mere human being chooses to declare that he doesn’t believe there is a God or a h*ll & therefore no heaven either.. the part that occupies the flesh & bones suit you are wearing is called your spirit and that part lives on into eternity. I can hear you protesting but it changes NOTHING… your spirit goes to heaven or the other place you don’t believe in depending on your choice while your body & spirit are still together..!! Jesus bridges the gap between here & heaven… give it some serious thought… 👏😁
